Nice church
Sep 2020 • Family
Nice church but was closed on Saturday evening. Opening times are limited so most likely you will not get in. From outdoors looks also nice.

Interesting but odd
Aug 2019
A Lutheran Church now proud of its Catholic decorative heritage. The wall paintings, depicting biblical moments, are a little garish surrounding the altar/sanctuary but intriguing. With some bright stained glass windows, with the sun, they create fascinating colour and atmosphere. A newer, additional side altar and its decoration again seems rather ornate for such a church.
Two delights in the Church are the “permanent” churchgoer seated at the end of the pew and the five “church mice” guarding the hymn books.
Well worth a visit and a cool sanctuary on a hot day.

Beautiful medieval church
Aug 2019
This grey granite church was completed in 1512. The white clock tower was built in 1816.

The interior is beautiful. The ceiling section of the altar features restored frescoes in bright colors.

On our visit, there was a service going on and we couldn't explore the church more.

Beautiful Frescoes
Jun 2019
I'm not sure if they actually ARE real frescoes or not but the interior art is beautiful. We attended a wedding in June and while we did not understand the Finnish that was spoken, the beauty and art of this lovely church spoke to us in other ways. Truly lovely and worth visiting if you are in Finland and enjoy religious art.

Beautiful, simple
Aug 2019 • Couples
For a catholic church, this one is simple in design and furnishing (but more than the Lutheran churches).

It's quite beautiful with a balcony, modern organ and a lot of seats.

a must to do in Rauma
Apr 2019 • Family
We visited Rauma for easter and I really wanted to see this church.When we arrived it was mass and we waited outside. It was full of eggs on the grass or hanging from trees , and the church is lovely inside and outside and the river nearby.
It is so quiet and inside is as inspiring as outside.
I thought I was acting in a series " LA PETITE MAISON DANS LA PRAIRIE", as everything seems to belong to the past.
I really enjoyed the frescos and sometimes churches are too loaded with paintings but here it is not the case , colors are soft , so don't miss this church.

The most beautiful church
Jun 2018 • Friends
This church is a must to see when you go to Rauma. It is located near Kanaali which is a river going thrue Rauma. The church has lots of history and is available for the tourist to get in.
